Do your cats know what "cookies" are? At my house, the dogs and cats come running if we offer "cookies," which is what we call treats, but they also sell homemade cookies for cats and dogs. I went into a specialty shop the the other day where they actually sold homemade cookies made for dogs and cats! They are so beautiful that you 'd think they are made for humans instead.
Have you ever wondered what a hedgehog might look like if it were bred with a cat, or what a cat might look like if he was actually an ice cream cone? Yeah, many of us have never considered either of these possibilities, but those who have can now check out the photos of the results of the incredible yet disturbing combinations.
Cat lovers, how long has it been since we've had a good old cat name showdown? Cosmo has a list of 50 of the best cat names that are popular right now, and I must admit, many of them are adorable. From Simba to Oliver, Loki to Cleo, there are lots of great ideas, not to mention cute cat photos to peruse!
OK, don't REALLY fire away at this cat. It's not bulletproof, but it IS partly made out of titanium! Ryhzik, a cat in Sibera, lost all of his limbs after being abandoned and getting frostbite. The paws weren't able to be saved, but the human who found and adopted the cat agreed to replace them with prostethics thanks to the vet who trated the animal.
Most people could spend whole days watching cat videos, but when cats snuggle up with animals much larger than themselves it's even more compelling. I still can't get over a video I saw once of a cat snuggling a dolphin! In our house, we like to joke that if we were smaller, our cats would just eat us, and maybe that's true, but maybe they really do just love to snuggle everything. Then again, maybe they just love to try and bribe any being into feeding them with cuddles!
Most cat owners have known the heartache of watching your cat not act like himself at some point. Maybe he had an upper respiratory infection (yes, many of us know how terrible and dangerous that can be, while most shelter cats seem to get one at some point), maybe he's going through a period of illness or maybe he's even depressed.
Just days ago, we had to rush my kid's beloved cat to the emergency vet due to respiratory distress. We found out that he has heart disease, might have months to live, and will be on medication for the rest of his life. We're all devastatd. This has been my teen's best friend since age 6. He's the most loving cat I've ever met, and he's the last of our original three cats we had since our kiddo was two (now almost 14). You can imagine how terrible we all feel.
Have you heard that there is a right way--and a wrong way--to pet a cat? According to scientists, there are many signs that indicate whether or not a cat wants to be pet or not, and following your cat's lead is the best way to pet him or her. This seems like common sense to me; everyone I know who has cats knows exactly where their cats enjoy being stroked and they'll even tell guests to avoid certain spots that cats dislike.
There are so many cute cats and dogs on Instagram these days that another one may not sound that exciting at first, but I promise that Zuu is definitely something unique! Zuu is a cat with an almost perfectly round face, and the cat's adorable cotton ball-like appearance is stealing everyone's heart. The cat looks like a forest spirit from a Studio Ghibli movie rather than a house cat!
